Postcards from my desktop
“I would like to write you so simply, so simply, so simply.”
Jacques Derrida, The Postcard: From Socrates to Freud and Beyond
Postcards from my desktop is a performance mixing RSS news feeds and simultaneous transcription. Sending snippets of communiqués across the ether, the work plays with interpretation, point of view and the imperfections of streaming technology.
Seeing the desktop as an exotic place where the world converges through RSS, the performance explores the limits of translation, immediacy and communication.
Access to the performances is open to all. You only have to connect to http://2008.panoplie.org/DoubleBind on Monday the 15th at 8.30 pm GMT+1 (Paris local time). Please follow this URL (http://www.worldtimeserver.com/convert_time_in_FR.aspx?y=2008&mo=12&d=15&h=20&mn=30) to find your local hour.
However, you will have to subscribe to panoplie to obtain a password in order to participate in the chat. (Top left of the screen)
